Libertarianism is nothing but an ideology that aims to use the power of the state to protect the powerful from the demands of justice at the expense of the weak.
Don’t believe it? Here is a Libertarian in chemical purity:
A lawless, unaccountable, rich white guy free from all the interfering botheration of the state is the fundamental dream of Libertarianism. Just look at the beau ideal of Libertarianism, Rand Paul, one of Trump’s greatest defenders, as he tramples all over the vulnerable in his war on public health because it infringes his selfish selfishness of Selfdom.
On Earth, they call it Libertarianism. In Hell, they call it Divide and Conquer.
Out of my entire high school education, hands down the most valuable class I ever took was typing. My entire adult career depended on it.
The core truth that the “Kingdom of God = Western Civilization/America” types have blasphemously rejected. It is the loss of this truth that gave birth to centuries of different forms of oppression for Caesar in the Name of God and, most recently, resulted in MAGA fascists and their Euro-allies spitting in the faces of Amazonian Catholics, calling them pagan idolators, and tossing their statue in honor of Our Lady of the Amazon in the Tiber when their only crime was to come seeking access to the sacraments for their people.
SCOTUS is taking up an abortion-related case that many fear and many hope will end our abortion regime. Do I think a GOP Court–dominated by 50 years of GOP jurisprudence which created (with Roe) and entrenched (with Casey) our abortion regime–will overturn Roe?
No, I don’t.
I could be wrong of course. I’ve been wrong before. But the incredible track record for wrongness of the Cult that has been so wrong about so much so many times for so long strongly suggests that their talent for wrongness, coupled with the history of the GOP SCOTUS, will result in the upholding of our abortion regime. That’s what happened with Casey 30 years ago when an 8-1 GOP Court (with a prolife Dem on it) upheld Roe. And did the blindest demographic in history learn from this betrayal and stop voting GOP? Of course not. Because the unborn are not really their priority. Using the unborn as human shields for the lies and cruelty of the GOP are their priority. So they keep voting GOP no matter what the GOP does, even when The Most Prolife President in History drives abortion rates up.
And I think the Cult will not care and will learn nothing when SCOTUS again upholds our abortion regime, because abortion only matters to them as an excuse. As long as their real desires–cruelty to the weak and brown–continue to be satisfied, they will shrug and overlook it when the GOP Court again upholds their abortion regime.
“If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.” – Lyndon Johnson
Trump cultists are Darwinianly choosing to turn COVID into the MAGA plague. God pity the weak who cannot get out of their way. The Confederacy once again chooses to punish itself for its wilful, spiteful evil.
One of the countless ways they do this is with the following “joke” they beat to death in their tiresome way:
The Herd of Independent Thinkers who download all their originality from FOX are now regurgitating this again and again. What they mean by this is “We think trans people are contemptible and we absolutely reject their self-definition and spit on them. However, because we are Total and Complete Liars, we will use the language we categorically reject for those we hate in order to lie through our teeth about our own vaccination status, because we hold everybody in contempt and do not care if they live or die so long as we can do whatever selfish thing we want. We are utter and complete People of the Lie who do not have one straw of self-consistency left beyond, ‘I want what I want when I want it’.”
